the way to washington. >> oh, my gosh. steven colbert yesterday on "meet the press" briefly stepping out of character with david gregory. >> does the outcome of this presidential election change anything significantly? >> sure. sure. i'm not ralph nader. you know what i mean? i don't think there's no difference. there is a difference. i don't know what the difference is, though. because i think -- i think there is a possibility that obama would be, say, more aggressive -- a more aggressive or reformer in the second act of his presidency. and i don't really know how -- i also don't know how mitt romney would govern. he might govern as a technocrat. like the guy from pepsi who comes in to run gm. he can't tell us what he'll do because he hasn't seen the books yet. we don't know, because he seems absolutely sincere as a moderate and pretty sincere as a severe conservative. so that's not a dig. it's honest confusion. he's got a good shot of winning. if he does, i hope he's a good president. if obama wins, i hope he keeps some of the promises he didn't keep the first time. but i have no i

together late ambassador chris stevens. attorney general eric holder says the probe has been active for weeks. just this morning, turkish media reports that two suspects have been detained in connection with the killing of ambassador stevens. nbc news has not independently confirmed that story. >>> later this morning, the september jobs report will be released. it will reportedly be better than august. let's go to jeff live in london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the problem is, the economy's just not adding jobs fast enough. we might see 118,000. that seems to be the consensus. but you know what? you need at least 125,000 to keep the equalibrium in the economy. this economy needs to find another 4.7 million jobs. that just isn't happening fast enough. that is a big deadweight around obama's neck when it comes to this election race here. probably just worth reflecting on why the federal reserve has said it is going to continue buying mortgage backed securities to the tune of $40 billion a month. it is all about that jobs number, and the fed's commitment to help the go

investigation in to that attack in libya and ambassador stevens killed and three other americans and someone that worked in the state department and knew the ambassador, do you think that the administration dropped the ball? >> the speech today is certainly going to highlight this but the administration is not dropping the ball. they have been coming out with information as they have learned it about the libya attacks and the danger today is con inflation of rhetoric and attacks could paint governor romney in to a position of scare mong mongering. this is a person in 2007 saying he would not go after bin laden if he had actionable intelligence and president obama got bin laden. the lynn yann incident is dangerous and the state department has to take care of the future in terms of its ambassador's safety and security and looking in to it. but to politicize it in such a way and platform could be undermining to that process. >> one area of concern is syria. ambassador ginsburg, i want your take on what governor romney is expected to say, specifically saying in syria, i'll work with the partners

the president's handling of the attack in libya that killed chris stevens as part of a larger narrative about leadership. you have sent a leader to secretary of state clinton saying diplomats requested additional security and that those requests were denied. can you tell us more about that? >> in my letter, we outlined 13 security interest attacks, threats against western targets. let's remember that in the six months that led up to 9/11, which was the death of four americans, the death of an ambassador, first time since the 1970s that has happened. they did ask for increased security. they actually diminished the security pro file. did you know for instance that twice, our compound there in bengha benghazi, sovereign territory, was bombed two times? the white house had never told the american people that let alone the word. did you know that the british ambassador had two assassination attempts on his life? did you know that secretary, ambassador stevens had a facebook post showing where he runs, his picture, and people were advocating they kill the ambassador. all of these t

athat killed ambassador chris stevens. the most important take away, there were no protests in front of the consulate before the attacks ever. directly contradicting the story given by susan rice three weeks ago. here's the timeline as we know it from the state department. at 8:30 p.m. local, the streets are calm as ambassador stevens says good night to a viz siing turkish diplomat. answer agent sees a large number of men flowing into the compound and immediately puts out on alarm. a security act hustles the ambassador and others to a bunker inside the residence. the attackers then spray diesel newly igniting the building, trapping the men inside, unable to see or breathe through the heavy smoke. they now know that one security agent escapes through a window. later the american security detail finds the body of shaun smith who died of smoke inhalation, but is unable to locate ambassador stevens and in fact does not find him until his body turns up hours later in a hospital after the staff there dials numbers on ambassador stevens' cell phone to identify him. survivors escape in an armor

killing of our ambassador, chris stevens. >> the issue has been there's been inconsistency from the administration as to how they described it. the president did call it an act of terror the day before but also made reference to the potential that this was a response to a video that was getting -- an anti-islam video that was causing disruptions in egypt as well. this is how paul ryan is describing the situation. he did it in a radio interview on friday. >> the problem is their story continues to shift. they fail to answer the basic questions about what happened. so his response has been inconsistent. it's been misleading. and more than a month later, we still have more questions than answers. the benghazi thing would be a tragedy in and of itself if it was an isolated incident. the problem is it's not isolated but a picture of the broader story of the absolute unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> david, as you know, the argument is that this central claim of the administration to have dealt a withering blow to al qaeda, including killing osama bin laden, is u

yesterday, suggesting that ambassador stevens himself had concern over islamic radicals and al qaeda elements in benghazi. there was a september 11th cable concerned about libyan militias helping to provide security to ambassador stevens. and last but not least today, a report by david ig nashs, a veteran foreign affairs correspondent in "the washington post," citing a cia talking point. remember, susan rice, the ambassador to the united states got in a lot of heat because she went on shows a week later and said it was a spontaneous action. it turns out, that's exactly the talking points that the cia was distributing within the united states government. so a lot of controversy, a lot of ambiguity. it's not likely to die down between now and monday and even after that, richard. >> it's going to be a very detailed and involved issue, if they do bring it up. we're getting information each and every day. mike viqueira, thank you so much. now, the attack on libya, as mike viqueira was telling us, goes back to this exchange. this is a big issue and might be a very big part of what is going

think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundamental question

the assault on our diplomats and the killing actually of chris stevens was spontaneous and their later assessment that it was opportunistic, they wanted to do, it they saw their chance with what was going on in cairo, the anger of the people over there about the video? >> i think the honest answer is they still aren't exactly sure how this came together. the official used with me the phrase a flash mob with weapons, but it's clear that the group included serious hard core terrorists that were probably member of the al qaeda in magrab, a group of very extremist people in benghazi. there were people who were unarmed who were kind of along as looters who wandered in and just took stuff. it was kind of a rag tag group, why they think it wasn't as coordinated as some reports suggested. i think one point for me, chris, as somebody who follows intelligence is these guys are assembly shards, different fragments, and they don't all fit, and they sometimes contradict each other and when things like this get politicized, as this did so extraordinarily in the debates, you look for a kind of certai
